The Misty Jaffe Early Leaders Program (ELP):

The 2021/2022 Early Leaders Program is a 1-year cohort program designed for those seeking or serving in new leadership roles and is open to all tenure-line and lecturer faculty. Junior faculty and faculty from historically under-represented groups are strongly encouraged to participate.  This leadership pathways initiative arose out of discussions about diversity and leadership development in our college, led by Faculty Council and delivered in partnership with the Dean’s Office and the Faculty Center.  This leadership pathways initiative arose out of discussions about diversity and leadership development in the CLA and the entire campus community. The inaugural offering, in spring 2020, took the form of a facilitated reading group intended to as a pilot upon which the Faculty Center will build for future university-wide efforts. The program was designed for those seeking or serving in new leadership roles and was open to all tenure-line and lecturer faculty though underrepresented faculty and junior faculty were strongly encouraged to participate. Meetings will include discussion of selected readings from the texts Strategic Diversity Leadership: Activating Transformation (Damon A. Williams 2013) and Reframing Academic Leadership (Lee Bolman & Joan Gallos 2011). Leadership topics will include: 

  • setting goals and expectations
